Deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department arrested a 63-year-old man around 9:30 a.m. this morning after he intentionally crashed his vehicle into another parked vehicle and into the front of a home in Perris, a Riverside County Sheriff's report.

Craig Clayton Gurney of Riverside crashed his Chevy Tahoe into the front of a residence and caused moderate damage to the front of the home shortly before 1 a.m. this morning. He also used his Tahoe to push a Honda Civic over an embankment at the end of the driveway of the home, according to Deputy Munoz, a Riverside County Sheriff's Press Information Officer.

Gurney appears to have left the scene of the crash after it occurred, as officers contacted him in his home. Munoz said Gurney refused to come out or cooperate with officers and Riverside County Sheriff's Departments SWAT Team, helicopter and K-9 Unit were called to the location.

Gurney was taken into custody without incident. Gurney was arrested and booked into the Southwest Detention Center in Temecula for assault with a deadly weapon and felony vandalism.
